Ubuntu - Using Google Apps Gmail as default Mail Reader

I just wanted to add a Google Apps Gmail setup for this great posting:

My script looks like this:
#!/bin/bash

/usr/bin/firefox -remote "openurl(https://mail.google.com/a/mydomain.com/mail/?extsrc=mailto&url=$(echo $1 | sed 's/mailto://') )"



I prefer the config above, as I tend to use multiple browsers, but as of version 3, Firefox can be configured to use your Google Apps email as the default mailto responder, a la:
